In late August, I thought things would slow down for me in September. Clearly, I was incorrect.
Oh well. Here’s what I’ve been doing for the last couple of months:
- Getting more people in on the DonorsChoose Challenge! Are you in for the WIN?
- Work work work. Still putting in those 60 hr weeks, but a few big projects are finishing up with happy (mostly) resolutions. If you manage people and aren’t hip to Manager Tools, then get with the podcast program!
- I WENT TO COSTA RICA AND IT WAS AMAZING. I saw bullet ants. I saw leaf-cutter ants. I saw howler monkeys and poisonous frogs. I quadrupled my bird life list in 4 days. I had massive bad hair days in the humidity, was almost killed multiple times by rickety bridges and crazy drivers, and had a wonderful, wonderful time. Costa Rica during the “green” (i.e, rainy) season was just heaven for a biologist. I spent 4 days running around yelling “OMG W00t OMG!”
- Did I mention that I saw leaf-cutter ants? Did I mention how GEEKED OUT I was about that? These little animals are the dominant herbivores in this ecosystem.
